Default Travel Channel "Luxury Offshore boats"

Last night the Travel Channel hosted a show regarding "Luxury Speed Boats". This segment is only aired on Monday nights under a title that of something like the "LUXURY LIFE STYLE. They replayed the show at least twice last night

Featured highlights were:

The Man of Steel
70 ft Magnum
Reggie Fountain in his famous black and yellow racing suit (and gold chain)
Pair-A Dice PX-77
Two 60 vintage Rivas
Wally Power, a 110 ft luxury offshore yacht in Italy with 17,000 HP and 75-80mph(burns a liter a SECOND! I thought I had problems.

Many other offshores were backgrounded in the video.

The clip of Man of Steel was at the 1000 islands poker run in Kingston, Ontario
Clips of the kilo run and Washington, NC race (avec Reggie, natrually and Pair-A Dice).
Reggie, Washington, NC. It had clips of Reggie in the 70's. He was a serious Evlis look alike contender. Gold framed glasses and white jump suit!

Dyno, tell us what you really think about Reggie.

Someday when I have time for a long story I will pen my mulitiple close encounters with Reggie.

I will say now that I have NEVER personally met the man but the close encounters have been by pure chance, unexpected, in several various states and NOT in a boating enviroment. Figure that one out!

Cool show!!!
I did think some of the guys were hamming it up a bit too much like the pair of dice guy.......we go 180mph around the race course in 5 footers.
Elvis, oops, I mean Reggie is always entertaining!
I'll defenately tune in again
